My oven broke a few years ago, and our circumstances prevented the purchase of a new one. Luckily, I have inherited my Grandma’s stove/oven, and my husband installed it last night. As I was cleaning it, I couldn’t help but remember all of the family meals she prepared for us.
At 99 years old, she cooked for us all for the last time a year and a half ago.
I think my Mom said it best when she said,”…the smells she produced!! It’s called love!” My Grandma passed away just over a year ago, and we all miss her deeply. I’ve also inherited a few of her recipes; I just hope I can do them justice on her stove!
I had mentioned to a friend on social media that I would be cooking chicken stew tonight for my son, but he left today to go on a cruise. Tonight I chose a couple of things to cook in my new oven instead.
It’s been a while since I’ve cooked chicken this way, but it was as good as I remembered. Then, I tried a new recipe for potatoes, and I think there are still a few kinks to work out! Next time I won’t cook two dishes for the oven at the same time. I will only be sharing my recipe for Parmesan Baked Chicken.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. I started by seasoning some chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and Cajun seasoning.
Mix mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, and garlic powder. I lined my pan with aluminum foil and greased it with butter. Place the meat in the pan and top with mayonnaise and parmesan mixture.
Cook at 400 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. I left mine in for 40 minutes because my pieces of chicken were very thick. Remove from the oven and that’s it!
My kitchen smells incredible! Now that’s Nomenom!!

- 6 large boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts
